Facilities & Activities


The Hotel

Our friendly and cheerful staff stay discreetly in the background, providing you with the feeling that you have the entire place to yourself. Hawksmoor House offers a totally unspoilt, unpolished and authentic country home experience for those who need some well-deserved rest. It is the perfect place to unwind.

If you love dirt roads, sunsets, wine by candlelight, an owl outside your window, and don't mind sharing the pool with the occasional disoriented frog, or getting a paw print of our overzealous dogs on your trousers, you have found your place!

Hawksmoor House

For guests that need a break from touring, tasting and people, Hawksmoor offers afternoon tea on the verandah: enjoy a cup of fresh tea or coffee, and a freshly-baked cake of the day, late afternoon.

​​Enjoy a "self-drive" journey through some of the premium whisky regions of Scotland and Ireland with our hand-picked selection of Single Malts and fine blends. Take your time, use our tasting notes, and choose your favourites, or enjoy one of our recommended Regional Tasting Journeys. Whether it's in the drawing room by the fire, or on the verandah to the sound of crickets, this journey can take some time, so be prepared to stay up late.

Stunning large room, furnished throughout with a mix of antiques and contemporary touches. Queen-size bed. Safe deposit box. Elegant bathroom with shower and/or freestanding bath, underfloor heating, hairdryer. Beautiful garden views.


Hawksmoor House is a Cape Dutch country retreat offering 16 beautiful guest rooms that is located on a 220 hectare wine farm, Matjieskuil, near Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands. Meticulously restored and beautifully decorated with exquisite antiques,

it occupies a stunning location amidst vineyards overlooking Table Mountain, and enjoys spectacular sunsets.

A 25 minute drive away from the buzzing Cape Town centre, the estate is quiet and serene.

In addition to our guests, the farm is home to horses, cows, porcupines, hawks, pelicans and countless other wildlife.

Our resident German Pointers Grace, Vriginie and Jack keep a watchful eye on the daily workings of the farm.
